(sorry for the fuzzy pic)
So I stayed home from school yesterday (minor sickness, I’m fine now) and basically spent the day doing homework, sewing, and watching The Music Man (as is my nature.) I actually wore this on Friday – I tend to wear simpler/more boring (depending on your point of view) outfits on Fridays, just because I’m so tired at the end of the week and don’t have the energy to think of outfits or get dressed creatively. This is my standard plain tee + favorite jeans + favorite boots combo, plus my amazing tailcoat. I feel like it’s a little bit sacriligeous (spelling?) to wear this coat with such a boring outfit, but at the same time I like how it gives the illusion that wearing this jacket is such a casual thing. You know, like Oh, I can’t think of a new outfit today, I’ll just wear a T-shirt and jeans, and it’s a little chilly outside, so I guess I’ll throw on a jacket or something…which just happens to be a tailcoat.
In other news, I’ve decided I’m not dressing crazy enough, compared to some of my previous outfits. Maybe it’s time to bust out the tutu again…or start wearing things upside down like I used to. Any ideas? I’m sort of stuck in a rut right now, which is really depressing/midlife-crisis-esque and I’m hoping to get out of it as soon as I can get a good night’s sleep and my brain is back to working properly.
One final note – the hole in my jeans keeps growing bigger and bigger. Sometimes I wonder why it’s only on one knee and not the other – do I have an especially pointy knee or something? And then other times I wonder which will happen first: the hole spreading all the way around the leg, or me outgrowing these pants to the extent that my legs being stuffed inside them isn’t remotely attractive anymore. :/
